I don't think so Irish the rib count on the under side fin are not the same the face and the shape of the head are different too

I think blueblue48 got it right!

Work in progress what do you think so far:

Second one is Vieja synspilum to me.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Could be Lupester, but it has alot of color where the ones I used to have, which were wild, weren't that colorful. Not even in breeding dress. I almost have to say that it may be a cross. Synspilum was my first impression, too.

there is more then one color variant of synspilum, your second one is a synspilum, watch out, if it is a male, it will attain 17"

the first one to me looks like a strain of flowerhorn, a low grade, but a flowerhorn

Cyanoguttatus and Carpitnis dont look anything like that first fish...

sign up on cichlidforum or cichlidae to get a proper ID.
